Libby’s approach to health and wellbeing is one of balance and suitable for everyone, she focuses on what you can do eat and do, rather than faddy restrictive diets. Her yoga style is rhythmic and breath focused, flowing continuously between asanas, paying attention to alignment.
Libby began her carefully curated a program, specifically designed to for any ability to ‘Detox and Restore’. We starting with a 90 minute vinyasa flow, stimulating your body’s own detoxifications systems to ‘seat and twist’ it out.
